Medicated poultry developer by arrow feeds

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My local feed store only carries either a medicated poultry developer or laying pellets. I will be having chickens that are months apart and the tag on the bag says the developer is good to point of lay. I will have to go beyond that point because of the age difference in my 3 sets of chicks. The medication in the feed is bacitracin methylene disalicylate. The question is, when my hens start laying, are the eggs safe to eat with this medication?

You'll have to ask them to carry a non-medicated grower or find another feed store. I wouldn't feed anything containing an antibiotic.

It is used for improving rate of weight gain and increasing the feed efficiency in poultry.

So I guess I should see if he can start carrying flock raiser or something, say 18-20% protien?
